Collge is a very small Roman Catholic College in Front
Royal, Virginia. The total number of students for this college
has already been established that it will not grow to
more that 400 (or so) students. Take this into consideration
when choosing your college anywhere. It's just enough for you
to know who everyone is, but not really “know” them.
At CC this is the case - it seems
like people who don't even know you, know your business,
who you're dating, whether you go drinking on weekends, and
The computer lab - as of this
spring, it was in the upstairs of the Regina Coeli
building on the 3rd floor. The ceiling is very low,
and the internet is programed to shut off at midnight.
So if you have some research to do for a
last minute paper - guess what - can't do it.
There is no internet access in the rooms either. Take
this into consideration when you are lugging your laptop up
3 flights of stairs.
Social Life - Weekends at
school kinda suck. During the summer there is more to
do, but in the winter you're left out to freeze.
You have to have all movies approved by an RA,
or otherwise, if you watch it anyways, and caught, pay
a fine. R rated movies in your room will be
confiscated. Then there is contra dancing. I'm not going to
explain, but they have it regularly on campus. Just look
it up on the net. The other “wonderful” actvity is
drinking. Many underage students participate, which usually takes place down
at the Dam on weekends. Oh, and plenty “of age”
people to go and buy illegally for you. Some morons
even do it during the winter. Whatever.
(as they call it)of Front Royal is a redneck town
30something miles from West Virgina. No Target or Walmart here.
We do it white trash style - KMART! Whooo Hooo!
The movie theater in town (yea right)has 3 or 4
screens. Last showing most nights is around 10 pm. Hey,
gotta be back for midnight curfew, right?
Prof's and helping
you - Some profs at CC are UBERhelpful. They will
schedule study times for you and are there for you.
One of the Philosophy Dept. profs even takes written questions
and answers them the next day in a handout for
the entire class. Yet the other freshman prof does not.
I had the other one. Many times I set up
sessions, but as a thesis advisor, he would have students
banging on his door. As a disgardable freshman, my time
was quickly done away with. I was told to come
back another time while the senior was given priority treatment.
Ah - and the wonderful dresscode. Girls, listen up.
You have to wear a skirt to Mass on Sundays.
Yea, pants are too masculine! Sorry!
Hopefully this new Library
will pick things up and bit and the food will
get better. The freshman 15 (or 25 for some) totally
happens at this school. The choices aren't too hot. It's
either, the right line, or the left line. Be ready
for pizza with stuff on it that is unidentifyable. One
look at Chef Ron, (who probably weighs around 400lbs give
or take 50lbs) and then think, gosh, if he looks
like that, and cooks this drivel, then what the hell
am I eating.
So how's that food for thought?
